Gone like the wind
And the state it put him in
To hold his head high
When he really wanted to die

And you know the difference it makes
And you know the all it takes
Is love, so he won't break

He's crazy from the pain
And can't get hurt again
If he ever falls
I'd be sorry for us all

And you know the difference it makes
And you know the all it takes
Is love, so he won't break

Right around the way
Is where they go to pay
For remedies and pills
To ease their ills

And you know the difference it makes
And you know the difference it takes
Is love, so he won't break

    General Commentit sounds as if this song is about a person who just kicked some sort of addiction. he used drugs, or something like it, to escape from the fact that he wished he was dead. This person experienced a lot of pain, which drove him towards drugs. The love that he needs is to replace the comfort that drugs gave him, so that he won't fall back towards that habit.

    General CommentIt's about a guy that gets heartbroken and is trying to get over it, head up high. There is an easy solution for his pain, which others find around the corner, at the drugstore, but he knows that the thing he needs is to feel loved.

    *sigh*

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has gotten his/her heart broken. All they need to feel better is love, but love is the one thing they will no longer "break" for.
